Tuscan Turkey Soup

Tuscan Turkey Soup

1 c. onion chopped
1 c. celery chopped
1/2 c. chopped red pepper
1 tsp. minced garlic
2 T. olive oil
28 oz chicken broth
1 lb. ground Turkey, browned
1 15 oz.can pumpkin
1 can white beans
grated parmesan cheese

In a large saucepan, saute onion, celery, red pepper 
and garlic until tender.
Stir in broth, turkey, pumpkin, beans and seasonings.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, 
uncovered 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve with Parmesan cheese on top.

This may sound like an odd recipe
 with pumpkin etc in soup, but actually it was delicious! 
The pumpkin is not readily obvious when you taste it, 
but it adds creaminess and fiber without fat and it
is packed with protein so it's a great 
soup for eating healthy too.
